The Heat is on Bivalirudin

The HEAT-PPCI trial, a single-center randomized trial of 1829 patients undergoing PPCI, compared the use of unfractionated heparin with bivalirudin with bailout GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors. The study has concluded that the use of heparin was associated with lower MACE and stent thrombosis with no difference in the rates of bleeding.

BRAVE-4 Favors an Old Fashioned Approach

The BRAVE-4 trial, comparing a strategy of bivalirudin and prasugral with unfractionated heparin and clopidogrel in patients undergoing PPCI, has been terminated early due to slow recruitment. Analysis of the 548 enrolled patients has shown no differences in the net clinical outcome at 30 days.

Accuracy of iFR Need Resolving

The diagnostic accuracy of iFR and Pd/Pa, as compared with invasive FFR, remains unclear. Analysis of 1593 lesions has shown that that iFR and Pd/Pa had ≥90% accuracy in predicting a positive or negative FFR in 64.9% and 48.3% of lesions.

The Enigma of Vitamin D Supplementation

There are increasing calls for widespread vitamin D supplementation given the contribution of this vitamin in a variety of pathological disorders. A meta-analysis of studies examining the impact of vitamin D supplementation has found no beneficial effects upon MI, ischemic heart disease, stroke, cerebrovascular disease, cancer, or total fracture by a actor of 15% or more.
